    • RTX AUSTIN 2019: FLIGHT INFO - COME FLY WITH ME!

      4 months ago

      GeorgeFromGeorgia RT Events Coordinator

      TL;DR - We’ve got flight deals with oneworld alliance for RTX 2019!


      ___________________________________________


      Hey everyone. It’s your resident community member turned events coordinator, George, with another RTX update.


      I’m excited to announce that oneworld alliance and Rooster Teeth have partnered to provide discounted airfare to RTX via participating carriers.


      One of the things we’ve heard from you is the desire for flight deals in addition to the hotel deals we provide. Although we have announced this already, I wanted to make sure there was a dedicated place for information. Here’s what you need to know to get in the air and en route to Austin.


      What is the oneworld alliance?

      oneworld is an airline alliance (group of airlines that work together to better facilitate air travel among their brands) made up of 13 global airlines. The carries who have agreed to help us out are:

      • American Airlines

      • British Airways

      • Cathay Pacific Airways Limited

      • Finnair

      • Iberia Airlines

      • Japan Airlines

      • LATAM Airlines Group S.A.

      • Malaysia Airlines

      • Qantas Airways Limited

      • Qatar Airways Company, Q.C.S.C

      • Royal Jordanian Airlines

      • Sri Lankan Airlines

      How much is the discount and how do I get it?

      Discounts range between 5%-25% and can only be accessed through the booking portal oneworld.com/events using the code OW25A19. While you can do multiple transactions, you can only purchase a maximum of 2 tickets per transaction.


      Discount percentages are applicable to fares in the main cabin or higher. In other words, anything above the basic economy is eligible for a discount. The booking portal won’t show any basic economy options so anything you see will be an eligible discounted fare.


      The exact discount amount depends on the fare, originating location, and selected airline. All of these options can be changed during booking.


      What about people whose preferred airline isn’t listed?

      If you have an airline you like that’s outside the oneworld alliance, that’s okay. We, unfortunately, don’t have deals for outside carriers, but we encourage you to do what’s best for you. Whether you’d prefer to fly basic fares, budget airlines, or a separate major carrier entirely, we understand. This is simply another, potentially cheaper option.


      What if we already purchased our flight?

      If you already purchased your flight, good for you! You’re ahead of the game and probably got a reasonably priced flight regardless. These discounts cannot be retroactively added.


      We understand flights, just like hotels can be a prohibiting factor in a lot of people’s plans for RTX. That’s why we work hard to build partnerships and cultivate deals to help alleviate some of that financial strain. The more the deals are used, the better we can understand and improve in the future. We encourage you to do more research and do what’s best for you, but don’t forget that there are things in place to help if you need it.


      So, quick recap:

      Portal - oneworld.com/events

      Event Code - OW25A19

      Discount Rate - 5%-25%

      Ticket Quantity - Maximum 2 per transaction


      Until next time, cheers!

    • Wedding Weekend

      9 months ago

      GeorgeFromGeorgia RT Events Coordinator

      This past weekend can only be described as a beautiful, emotional, hilarious train wreck.


      It was the best wedding I've ever been to.


      My closest friend, Tony, got married to the love of his life. I was the best man, but due to health concerns, the pastor couldn't make it. Now, about 9 years ago I got ordained as a joke and in the time since then I completely forgot about it. Tony and Amy (the bride) did not.


      The thing about officiating your best friend's wedding is you are already emotionally invested so anytime someone starts crying you can't help but cry. And I cried a lot.


      Like a whole lot.


      I was standing there and I heard sniffling to my left; Tony was teary mess and when he made eye contact with me it was like a faucet opened. I'm pretty sure we cried more than anyone else at the wedding.


      All this is to say, I saw my brother get married this weekend. I got to be a part of it and I'm ecstatic to add another chunk of people to my family.


      TLDR; I'm not crying, you're crying!!!

    • Excitment

      11 months ago

      GeorgeFromGeorgia RT Events Coordinator

      I can barely contain my excitement thinking about being back in Austin. Here's to the Daddies, the Tiki Team, the Guardians and everyone else who serve to make every year special.


      Look out Texas, here I come!

    • Man...

      1 year ago

      GeorgeFromGeorgia RT Events Coordinator

      Work is a lot of work.


      Who would have imagined?

    • Yes Man

      2 years ago

      GeorgeFromGeorgia RT Events Coordinator

      If I had to be completely honest with myself, 1992-2016 were fairly "safe" years for me. I always stayed in my lane, very rarely getting out of my comfort zone and always succumbing to the more introverted side of my personality.


      A lot of things have happened in the last year. I have been tested physically, emotionally, and mentally everyday and though it all I've come to the realization that I am much stronger that I thought I was and I miss a lot of opportunities because I doubt myself and let fear dictate a lot of my decisions.


      So, about 3 months ago I decided to change that. 


      I'm going to do me best to say yes to as many things as I possibly can (within reason). So far it has bred a lot of cool experiences: I went to Miami for the first time and went to Ultra Music Festival where I dance with a beautiful Ukrainian woman. I smoked hookah beachside with a couple friends and people I met while clubbing. I played in beach ultimate frisbee tournaments in Destin, Florida and Savannah, Georgia. I got drunk on a party bus to a baseball game and someone came up about $40 richer (still not 100% sure how). I've been actively dating for the first time in my life. I'm typing this from a cabin in the mountains of North Carolina after coming to the conclusion that life was driving me caraway and I neede to get away.


      Next weekend I'm going to Canada for the first time for the wedding of 2 incredible people (friends I made here in the community!) and 2 weeks after that I'll be in Austin prepping to PA for someone at RTX.


      RTX London is in my future as is the potential to be truly happy for the first time in a long time. 


      Fortune favors the bold is my motto for now and while things are still scary and I still second guess myself a lot, saying yes to more things have taught me how to manage my fear. So here's to more amazing adventures, incredible mistakes, and a veritable life-brary of stories I'm sure to accrue.


      Cheers!
